Gainsborough Freestyle™ Trilock Wins ‘Smart Lock Product of the Year’ in 2021 IoT Breakthrough Awards Program

Allegion Australia today announced that its Gainsborough Freestyle™ Electronic Trilock has been selected as the winner of the ‘Smart Lock Product of the Year’ award in the 5th annual IoT Breakthrough Awards program conducted by IoT Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organisation that recognises the top companies, technologies and products in the global Internet-of-Things (IoT) market today.

In August 2020, Allegion Australia released the Gainsborough Freestyle™ Electronic Trilock, one of the first ‘3-in-1’ smart locks on the market. The new electronic Trilock® combines Gainsborough’s modern and sleek design aesthetic with advanced IoT connected technologies to provide users unparallel convenience, peace of mind, and the freedom to move.

The functionality of the Gainsborough Freestyle™ Electronic Trilock replicates the three locking functions of its mechanical predecessor; unlocked (both internal and external handle unlocked), locked (external handle locked, internal handle unlocked) and deadlocked (both internal and external handle is locked). The team at Allegion has been able to develop these three modes of locking that can be both controlled at the lock and through the app. This is the first time an electronic lock has a deadlock function. When used with the Gainsborough Freestyle™ Door Sensors, users know if the door is locked, unlocked, and deadlocked as well as opened or closed.

“We are proud to not only deliver families advanced security for peace of mind with the Gainsborough Freestyle™ Electronic Trilock product, but also create a positive user experience worthy of today’s modern consumer,” said Serge Zappone, managing director of Allegion Australia. “We are honoured to be selected as a standout smart home innovator in the 2020 IoT Breakthrough Awards program, and we look forward to continued success and momentum in 2021 and beyond.”

The mission of the IoT Breakthrough Awards program is to recognise the innovators, leaders and visionaries from around the globe in a range of IoT categories, including Industrial and Enterprise IoT, Smart City technology, Connected Home and Home Automation, Connected Car, and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 3,850 nominations from companies all over the world.

“The features of the Gainsborough Freestyle™ Electronic Trilock combines exceptional style and quality, simple installation, as well as advanced connected technology that provides a user experience that breaks through in today’s crowded field of smart lock products,“ said James Johnson, managing director at IoT Breakthrough. “We extend our sincere congratulations to the entire team at Allegion for taking home the top spot for our ‘Smart Lock Product of the Year’ designation in the 2021 IoT Breakthrough Awards program.”

The Allegion Australia team is also working continuously to develop a strong road map of smart home integration with the Gainsborough Freestyle™ app as new technology is developed. The intuitive app helps ensure the interface with the lock is easy to use by all. Additionally, its brand Gainsborough has drawn on 50 years of style and innovation to develop a lock packed full of technology and functionality, in a fashionable and slim-lined design suitable for homes.
